EVENT FOR ADULTS


Striding Lines: An evening with author Bobbie Malone and quilt artist Rumi O'Brien

Thursday November 14 at 6:30pm    
In the downstairs Archer Room (through the lobby stairwell)

Sign-up Required
(event is over)

Bobbie Malone reaches beyond the quilts to tell Rumi O’Brien’s own story, from her initial foray into the quilting world to her developed dedication to the craft. Contributions from leaders in the art, textile and quilting community, including Melanie Herzog and Marin Hanson, contextualize O’Brien’s work in the greater community of quilt-makers and artists. This book celebrates the life and ingenuity of a Japanese-born American immigrant whose oeuvre is equally Japanese and Wisconsinite—and entirely distinctive. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Bobbie Malone is a historian, author, and editor, and former director of the Office of School Services at the Wisconsin Historical Society. Artist Rumi O’Brien’s quilts are intimate narratives of her life. Whether set in her everyday world of Madison, Wisconsin or in an imaginary landscape, the quilts are always deeply personal.
